Millions of people tuned in to the Vice Presidential Debate on Wednesday, October 7, such as 2 prior Vampire Diaries stars — and both appeared to have sliiiightly distinct opinions regarding how it moved.
Paul Wesley, AKA Stefan, and Matthew Davis, who performed Alaric about the CW show, got into a little bit of a, shall we say, conversation on Twitter concerning the debate and the way it had been treated. Though a number of the tweets are deleted because Tuesday, BuzzFeed gets the receipts.
Apparently, Matthew had delivered a first tweet about Vice President Mike Pence, writing, “It’d be nice if the moderator would stop interrupting Pence and let him finish his point,” referencing how Pence conducted over his allotted time during the discussion. Paul replied to stated tweet, stating, “It would also be nice if pence answered the question he was originally asked rather than deflecting.”
Matthew then reacted to his former cast mate, accusing him of voting “criminals and losers” at the 2016 election. “Paul likes to vote for criminals and losers, just like he did in 2016,” he composed. “Your opinion on the matter carries little weight as far as I’m concerned. Next.” Paul responded that he’d not vote Trump, and subsequently made a joke referencing Matthew’s onscreen personality. “Guys Alaric drank some vervain he’s losing it,” he wrote. Matthew apparently did not think the joke was that humorous, tweeting “Yawn,” and Paul again replied, stating, “Lighten up baby boy u know u miss me.”
Paul sent love through conversation at the close of the conversation, but Matthew occurred to Twitter on October 9 to talk about his political standpoint. “For the record: I’m a social libertarian. Which means I don’t give a f*ck about what you do in your private time. So long as you don’t hurt others, It’s your life. Im also a free market fiscal conservative who wants more restrained spending from our government,” he also tweeted. “I would rather not have to say any of this, but the hate I’ve been receiving for well over a year now has crossed a line I can no longer ignore.”
In conclusion, Twitter discourse is still nearly as striking as an incident of Vampire Diaries.
